What you will Need: How to Make a Santa Chair Back Cover
- I yd Red Anti Pill Fleece
- 1/8 yd white Anti pill Fleece
- Handful of polyester fiberfil
- Sewing machine
- Standard sewing supplies.
Step 1: Cut out your Fabrics
Cut out your fabrics according to the diagram below. The circle and small rectangle should be white and the main piece should be red. Cut the main fabric as one piece.
Step 2: Add the White Trim
Place the white trim right sides together with the bottom of the main red piece and stitch it together using a 3/8″ seam allowance. Repeat for the other two pieces.
Step 3: Stitch the Santa Hat Together
Place the two pieces right sides together and stitch the sides and top together using a 3/8″ seam allowance. Leave the bottom open. Make sure to match the white trim.
Step 4: Hem the Bottom
Fold under the bottom about 1/2″ and hem all the way around. There is no need to fold under as fleece does not fray.
Step 5: Create the Pom Pom
Take the Circle and baste all the way around about 3/8″ inside the edge. Place the fiberfil inside and pul the thread taught around it so it creates a pom pom.
Step 6: Add the Pom Pom
Insert the point of the chair cover into the pom pom and hand stitch it to the chair cover. Once you have added the pom pom place it on your chair and fold the top down so the pom pom is hanging down. You have now finished your Santa chair back cover.
